JERRY GLEASON

Administrative Pastor (2017)

Pastor Jerry and his wife of nearly 50 years come to us from the windy city of Chicago, IL. His objective in ministry is "To serve in a capacity that will glorify the Father and the Son." 


He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Southwest Baptist University and a Master of Divinity Degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and numerous certified trainings both with the military and in Christian ministry. Thirty-five years in Pastoral Ministry (thirty-two of which were in two churches) and twenty-five years as a military chaplain have well-equipped Jerry for the position of Administrative Pastor. 


Included in his vast field of experience are beginning a Christian academy and school board and overseeing it as headmaster for several years, rewriting church constitutions & by-laws and church policies and procedures, forming and overseeing budgets for the churches he has served, as well as teaching military seminars and serving as a volunteer in many community organizations and events. 


In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren, classic cars, and is quite the "handy-man".
